Studio DaphNat - Photo on Canvas Paper

This weeks Studio DaphNat is about a technique with unlimited possibilities.
The basics:
Print a black & white picture onto acrylic canvaspaper (you might need to "help" your inkjetprinter a little bit with this paper).
When you have done this, all you have to do is choose from an unlimited number of possibilities to add colour to your picture. You can think of acrylic paint/paintdabbers, watercolour paint, wax crayons, Ecoline, soft pastels, distress ink, good old colour pencils.......well.... you get the point.
Just add colour by choosing one of these colouring methods or try to combine them for maximum effect!

To colour this one I used watercolour paint and wax crayons.

For this picture I used Distress Ink, soft pastels and walnut ink.

WARNING: make sure not to wet your photo too much, the colours of the printing may run!

Now go and try this one yourself, but not before finding some more inspiration on Nat's Blog

Bye Bye DT

as of October 1st, I quit the MLS designteam. Of course this didn't come as a big suprise, since I wasn't very active for the team in the last few months.
And I expect this will not change in the next half year at least :-), so I decided to quit.
Now I can just scrap when I feel like it, without feeling the pressure to make something for the team, which was difficult sometimes, although the pressure was just in my head....
And now...only 8,5 weeks left until Due-Day... can't wait to see what Mini-Me looks like. For some prenatal shots of Mini-Me...check out my non-scrap blog This is the place where you can find out anything baby-related, that is... if you are interested.

At the moment I am working on a new technique for Studio DaphNat... and I am looking forward to a Prenatal Crop I am organizing for the MLS DT girls at my place :-)....
